Transforming Community Now … and in the Future
In April 2013 we launched our 50th Anniversary Celebration — a bold plan of grants, scholarships and community programs. I am pleased to report that we have met and exceeded nearly all the ambitious goals of our Golden Celebration. With our most recent $1 million Transformational Grant to the Schenectady Bridges Partnership, our 2013-14 Golden Grants have eclipsed $2.6 million — $600,000 more than we had originally committed.
As we close our Golden Anniversary, it is important to point back to those who started The Schenectady Foundation, particularly Bill Milton and Charles W. Carl, Jr. These two gentlemen, who I knew well and admired deeply, were the architects of an institution that has proven to be a reliable, sustainable champion of the community. Thanks to their forethought and leadership, over the years TSF has returned more than $18 million to charitable causes in Schenectady County.
Now it’s our turn. Our last goal remains unfulfilled — to reseed the endowment of The Schenectady Foundation for the next 50 years by receiving commitments from individuals and couples through annual giving and estate plans. How can you help us meet this final goal?
We of course welcome your year-end donation to any of our current initiatives. But we also hope that you will think about your long-term support to the community by considering a gift through your will or estate plan to The Schenectady Foundation. Help us ensure that The Foundation is here for our community not just today – but for years to come – helping to support stronger families, more resilient youth, and advancing the well-being of the community.
